Compound objects are a family of objects that have more than one part to them, which do different things when interacted with. These parts can be buttons, as in the case of lifts with up and down buttons, movers with right and left buttons, vendors which have specific buttons that the hand has to push; text parts for displaying text (as in the X-Ray); animation parts and others. Compare with simple object.
